Can you believe it's been 17 years since Unfabulous first aired?! (17 years, 11 months, 3 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Unfabulous end?
When Unfabulous came to an end after 4 years in December 2007, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Addie Singer (Emma Roberts) and Geena Fabiano (Malese Jow). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would an Unfabulous reunion disappoint people?
Unfabulous aired from 2004-2007 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Jow said she's not sure if Unfabulous would work today. “I don't want to see old Geena Fabiano,” she told a journalist (Jow turned 31 in February). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for an Unfabulous movie?
In a recent interview, Emma Roberts said she can't imagine an Unfabulous reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Malese Jow has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did an Unfabulous movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
What about an Unfabulous reboot?
Recasting Unfabulous for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of an Unfabulous reunion, an Unfabulous movie, or an Unfabulous reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
